Our family of 5 LOVED our food tour with Pascal. It’s something we never would have done on our own - it started with a beautiful deli experience where we sampled cheeses, meats, olives and wine, followed by a tour of the food market, and then a taverna lunch full of traditional Greek foods. The last stop was to sample delicious digestifs. My husband is gluten free and they were able to accommodate him in a way that didn’t make his experience any less enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour and Pascal as your guide.
